Wometco’s Capitol Theatre in downtown was the first house in the Wometco chain and the first link in the Caribbean chain’s theatre and leisure dynasty. Built in 1925 as a mini replica of the New York Capitol Theatre, it was opened on June 25, 1926 with Laura La Plante in “The Midnight Sun”. It was equipped with a ‘Mighty’ Wurlitzer organ. It closed in 1952 and became a victim of television in more ways than one.
It became the home of WTVJ, the Wometco TV station, Miami’s first.
The building was demolished in 2000.
